Subject: [diningout-749] New Meetup: Planning Meeting to make Holiday Baskets for "So Others Might Eat" (SOME)

Announcing a new Meetup for Annapolis Foodies!

What: Planning Meeting to make Holiday Baskets for "So Others Might Eat" (SOME)

When: December 8,[masked]:30 PM

Stan and Joe's
37 West Street
Annapolis, MD 21401

Join fellow foodie Chris and the Annapolis Social Group and support this worthy cause.

There is an organization in Washington DC called ?So Other Might Eat (SOME) ( From their mission statement: ?SOME is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation's capital.?

I would like to invite people to participate in a Meetup event to put together some baskets in support of this SOME program. SOME has provided info on what goes into each basket and what kinds of baskets people use. My thought is that we can divide up the responsibilities to acquire the baskets and their contents and then get everyone together to put the baskets together.
Contents of each basket:
3 cans sweet potatoes
3 cans string beans
1 box of stuffing mix
1 box of instant mashed potatoes
2 cans of gravy
1 can of cranberry sauce
2 cans fruit cocktail
Drink mix or juice concentrate
2 boxes of mac and cheese

Optional contents of each basket:
Signed greeting card
Holiday paper
Table cloth
Plates and cups
A bow

From the SOME coordinator, here is her guidance on the ?baskets?:
The term "basket" is a broad one; feel free to use any type of container - while we get some actual wicker type baskets, we also see a lot of plastic laundry baskets, and the grocery store type "tote bags" (the ones that keep us from using plastic bags) are increasingly popular. Some folks decorate cardboard boxes, rubbermaid-type bins, you name it. The important thing is to just have fun doing it.

There will be two Meetup events for this. This one will be a planning meeting to make assignments and talk about the baskets. The second will be to assemble the baskets and get them ready for delivery. We can either drop the baskets off with SOME and they will deliver or we are welcome to do the actual deliveries to SOME clients. We can discuss that at the planning meeting as well. If you can't make either event but want to participate, email me directly so we can work something out. Thanks!
